Daily Challenges

What's your opinion on these?

I quite like them in principle, it's giving me something to do and getting me to try a few things I don't normally do and even learn a bit more about the game. I have entered some free roam events for the first time. Not that impressed with them but worth trying (too many other players just going round getting kills rather than trying to do whatever the objective is). Also I never knew you could sell herbs to a doctor until I got a challenge to sell herbs.

Some aren't very challenging though. Like the above selling herbs / feathers / meat / pelts is simple. The easiest I have done is join a gun rush. That is literally all I had do, join it, not finish it. In fact I got kicked or disconnected from the lobby, didn't even start it and yet it still counted as completing the challenge.

Others are too challenging for me, like having to win a free roam event, it's highly unlikely I am ever going to manage that. Some are annoying, kill 5 players with a weapon I do not own. I don't see it being worth buying that just for these and I don't really want to do that in free roam anyway (unless I'm attacked and have to defend myself). If it can be done from a showdown then that's fine, but with the current system of course if you just join a showdown you've no idea if its going to have the weapon you want available. 

I quite like the hunting specific animal / gathering specific herb. But they can take a lot of time and if I was just doing this for the gold and XP then it probably wouldn't be worth it. In the time it takes me to find the specific animals / plants and gather the right amount I probably could have earned more money just hunting / fishing anything and got more XP from a stranger mission.

I have only completed all 7 once and did not notice any bonus for doing them all. Anyone know if there are bonuses for completing them all, completing all for a week etc?

I've yet to do all 7, usually because of one that requires spending money needlessly. The herb challenge is good. You need to learn where all the herbs are located to make different tonics and such.  I'm just about full on all the different tonics and different recipes I can cook. Since the stupid "easy to get fat"  code R* set up in the last update, I've stockpiled every meat with every recipe. Thanks for over correcting R*!

I've won a couple of events and other game modes. I'm sure I won because of silly matchmaking putting me in with newbs. I'm not gonna spend money just to complete a challenge, but if I was thinking about doing that specific thing, that would be the time to do it.

I don't like the killing other player challenges. It cost ya bounty money and since everyone has the same challenges, it causes chaos. I just bring in my sub account character and complete it that way. LOL!

Everyone has the exact same challenges each day? I did not know that.

The bounty system doesn't seem to make that much of difference to me. I had something like 5 kills with a specific gun the other day. I wouldn't have bothered with it but someone shot at me so I shot back and killed them and when they respawned they didn't move. I don't know if they were lagging out or something but I took full advantage and killed them 4 more times. I don't even think my bounty came to 50c. But I can't remember for sure. It certainly wasn't anything that seemed excessive. Maybe that was because they shot first? I don't know.

I've completed all 7 the last 3 days and haven't noticed any bonuses coming my way.

I quite like them. It's cool with some set objectives to add to your own game play and many of them is easy gold. The ones that require you to kill with some obscure weapons I do with crew members. Unfortunately it doesn't count if you use friendly fire in posse to avoid getting a bounty. Have yet to test if it works using posse infighting. The doable ones I actively hunt down others. Never really done that before including GTAO so it has definitely made me a more aggressive player. Seems to be stuck in red.😅 Kinda like it.

It's strange that it's like that now because the first few days players had different challenges.

I've had a few times where I didn't get a bounty. Both when the other player shot first. But also had loads where I got one so think it's a bug when you don't receive a bounty for killing another player. No matter who shot first.

Well, it's been the same for me, my sub-acct and Ultra everyday I've checked.

Xyon, Shortround and I had different challenges the first few days. Ever since it's been the exact same.

I dunno what's better for all players, but I feel everyone having the same challenges will promote griefing more.

Daily challenges are a sad alternative for fun content and gameplay but it does create an incentive to jump in daily while the game gets out of beta at a snail's pace. I'm doing most of them so I earn around 0.5 bar relatively fast on a daily basis, which is cool. I tend to do some hunting and hideout clear-outs in-between so first time in a while I'm feeling like I'm actually progressing and accumulate some currency.

Having the same challenge as everyone one else makes it easier for me since before I log in there's usually a few youtube vids on how to do these efficiently or in the same general area (for herb and animal spawns) which cuts down the time needed to do them and makes them just about worth doing vs other things. 

I think the bonus for doing all should be an additional 0.3 gold (so you should be getting 1 bar total a day).

Drop me a line if you want to trade some challenges like killing people with maxim gun or throwing weapons off a horse etc. (evening Europe time).
